Fun Weekend!

This was a great weekend, we got some much needed relaxation! Abbey started saying "mama" and is pretty much crawling! We went over to Vern and Maureen's camper on Saturday and had a lot of fun! Here are a few pics from the weekend!

I'm a big girl now!

So this weekend was the first time Abbey actually pulled herself to her feet in her crib. This week she has also been able to get from laying down to a sitting position in her crib. She is growing so fast makes me want to stay at home and have more!! She seems to be changing and learning new things everyday! She has been very "mommy clingy" lately, last night Shane took her from me like he always does to feed her at night and she wailed and reached for me- only for about 10 seconds then she was ok but it made my heart melt, she sure does love me! She also gets really mad when I leave her line of sight, even if it is to the other room but when I come back in she is fine! I think that we are trying to phase out her last little cat nap of the day, she used to come home and sleep from 5ish to 6 or 6 30 get up have a bottle and dinner and then go take a cat nap anywhere from 7 45 to 9 and wake up at 9 for the last bottle of the day. Last night we tried something new- I woke her up at 6 30 and gave her dinner and no bottle and then at about 8 30 we gave her a bath and her last bottle and put her to sleep, she was a little cranky but she also only slept from 6-630- she was too busy playing with her pigs to take her full nap so I think that was a big reason for the crankiness- and teething. Anyways we are going to try to start stretching her in between eating times from 3 hours to 4-5 hours. We will see how that goes! She has also started eating some finger foods, she has had real banana- she was only interested in making is squish in her hands not really getting it to her mouth, then she has had Gerber baby puffs and she actually got about 3 of those in her mouth by herself last night! Sure does make me nervous but it must be done! Well enjoy the pictures, I am sure more will come this weekend. I SO need a long weekend, just what the doctor ordered for sure.

Exploring this new talent she discovered...
I see you Mommy

Almost.....there.....just....reach...a ....little....more......
When she won't sleep I just give her a double does of Benedryl, what she has allergies....that's ok right?? I mean its not a triple dose that is just silly.

Mother's Day

This is what Shane and Abbey got me for my first "official" Mother's Day! Its Abs birthstone, and I love it! Shane also got me a pedicure, which I went to get last night. My pigs are squealing in delight! We had a really good time and got to see my Mom and Ginger, Grandma Stewart and Grandma Gootee. Then we came back home to the Zimmerman festivities and finally back home. Abbey has been exhausted! This morning Shane was playing golf and I got her ready to go to Connie's and she was very clingy and wanted me to hold her- which I wanted to do too- she was really fussy at the 6 am feeding- well not fussy but again wanted me to hold her close and not leave her in her room...I had to take a shower so she had to be left- however my Dad and Ginger gave us the rainforest mobile and she loves it so all was well in a few minutes. She also has a runny nose- all of these symptoms were present when she cut her first tooth a few weeks ago...so maybe we are getting more who knows! We had a great Mother's Day and weekend.

My little girl is getting so big

Well its a good thing that Shane moved the mattress down in Abbey's crib this week, she has learned a new trick...she can pull her self up if she is sitting down. She leans over and grabs a hold of the bars and works her way up so that she is on her knees- she did not make it to her feet by her self yet. After she did this she fell over backwards and bonked her head on the changing table but did not cry, she was a little startled but I think she was just confused! I am not sure if she can get to a sitting position from laying down but we are probably going to find out tonight! We could be in for some interrupted sleep in the next few days!

She knows she is doing something new
And she is pretty darn happy about it! p.s if you click on this picture you can see her little teeth better!
